For today’s honey recipe, we experimented with Savannah Bee Company’s raw honeycomb.  This is the most healthy form of honey available, but I always shied away from it because I thought the texture would be too waxy for my liking.  Clearly, judging from how much is missing from this box, its waxiness was not an … Continue Reading

Sorry that my honey infatuation has resulted in my working “bee” into every possible word.  Actually, I’m not sorry, as it’s entertaining me more than it probably should.  Yesterday, we featured Savannah Bee Company for not only their show-stopping honey, but their hospitality in hosting us and teaching us a thing or two (or a … Continue Reading

I can be a bit of a braggart when it comes to extolling my friends and their many accolades.  Simply put, they’re rockstar badasses who continuously inspire me and enrich my existence.  Some circumnavigate entire continents on their motorcycles, while others are busy saving the world or…waxing poetic about meat.  What I am about to … Continue Reading

It started off like any other Sunday night.  Our bellies freshly full o’ supper, the men were in the living room watching football as the women sat chattering the night away in the adjacent dining room.  This particular Sunday, Christmas lights were twinkling in the periphery, making the whole scene not unlike a Hallmark holiday … Continue Reading

First of all, why is this cartoon making me laugh so hard right now? Second of all, as promised, here are some more winning Thanksgiving recipes.  Since mashed potatoes are a must this time of year, I figured I would be amiss if I didn’t include them.  However, after being forced to eat potatoes EVERY … Continue Reading

The most phenomenal people I know never complain, which I think stems from a keen awareness on their part of all there is to be thankful for.  We belong to a culture that perpetuates the desire to vent about (and even invent) problems, because deep down, I think that most of us feel guilty when … Continue Reading
